XTERRA Wellington Trail Running hold a five event season from the end of March to mid June. We rotate through venues to keep things interesting, and guarantee you the best running experience in the Wellington region.

event one
Sunday - 25th March

  • West Wind
  • Meridian Wind Farm
  • We are absolutely stoked to be able to bring you a unique piece of running in New Zealand, maybe even the world. The great folks at Meridian have allowed us access to over 25km of trails up amongst one of the most advanced wind farms in the world.

event two
Sunday - 15th April

  • McKerrows Revenge
  • The Orongorongo's
  • McKerrow’s Revenge shows you how close Wellington is to tracks you never knew existed.

event three
Saturday - 5th May

  • Makara Starlight Run
  • Makara Peak MTB Park
  • There’s nothing quite like trail running in the dark! Makara Peak has a fantastic network of trails with great under foot conditions and high quality trails making it an ideal location for XTERRA night running. We mark the trails extra well and illuminate the tricky bits giving you a great night out running or walking under the stars.

event four
Sunday - 20 May

  • The Woolshed Run
  • Belmont Regional Park
  • A classic XTERRA course with a great old Woolshed by the Venue HQ. The courses take you through pine and native forest, plus a fair amount of open well formed tracks. It’s a solid run, with a bit of climbing, but worthwhile for the views. This venue is everything an XTERRA trail should be and you will love it. Parking is at a bit of a premium, so car pool if you can.

event five
Sunday - 10th June

  • Red Rocks
  • Owhiro Bay
  • So you thought you knew our Coastlines? Get up close and personal with Cook Straight. From the spectacular ridge top views to the rugged Coastal Track this is a day you will not forget.
